    Got my Transformer!!! Now what? (several issues and a couple Qs)

    New here and new to the transformer. However, not new to the Android OS. Having some issues with the keyboard being recognizd and some fitment issues between the keyboard. its really hard for the tablet to connect. When I was in the store the tablet just fell into the keyboard with ease. Now is this just something that needs to be broken in or does this sound like a legitimate issue? Also when connected it will randomly drop internet connection. also the keyboard will randomly open the url when typing and my words will get jammed up in the top. also, the tablet seems to bloom sightly in the lower left corner. The keyboard also likes to randomly select a spot in the text box to relocate my text line. words also do not drop to the next line when they hit the boarders of the text box.

    anyways those are just several issues i have had on day 1 :P

    So onto the fun stuff... MUST HAVES!!! What must I have for this thing? Apps, hardware, accessories... what do you allrecommend and what should i stay away from? thanks and i look forward to being a contributing member here for a long time

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your toy. Sorry you are having issues.

    Sounds like most of your issues regarding text showing up in random spots can be fixed. I suffer from the same problem where my thumbs tap the trackpad and cause the cursor to click in a spot. To fix this, disable the trackpad while typing (top row, fourth button from the left)

    As far as the keyboard docking, it should go pretty easy. Check to make sure the lock slider is ALL the way to the right to get it locked in. Mine does not have an issue, but some users have said this can help. If that doesn't fix your keyboard issue, you may want to exchange the tablet, or the dock, or both. Here is a thread regarding this specific issue.

    For must have apps, check out the Apps section of the forum for tons of recommendations.

    Best of luck, and if you have issues just ask.

    thanks fo the reply. i am trying that button you infomed me about and i will et you know how it works after i type my response. i dont what the issue is with the docking station. it just has a tight fit to really get in there and be able to lock in. when i was at best bu the tablet just dropped in and clicked automatically. now it just seems like i have to give it a little motivation to get it in there. i usually have to assist the locking lever into position for it to lock. im going to let it wear in for about another week or two beforre my 30 days are up and then give it a look over and go from there. i cannot wait to get onto the apps section and look up a bunch of stuff. looked into a thread to check out peoples screenshots of their homepage on their transformer and i downloaded an ap organizer. just wish it had a standard file picturefor the icon but i can live with it until i discover something else. .

    and wow that button that locks the trackpad worked like a charm. thank you very much!

    wow I am having the same issues! so to prevent the text from randomly picking a spot, I press the fourth button on the keyboard that looks kinda like a TV with a line slashed thru it, correct?

    Correct, that key is actually to enable/disable the touchpad.

    The icon is supposed to look like a trackpad and 2 mouse buttons with a line through it, but yes, that is the magic key
